I think that my childhood and whole my life were influenced by the fact, that I spent my holiday and free time on a country, where both of my grandmothers lived.
I had the luck, that both lived in a wonderful shire of Czech-moravian highland. One in shire of Havlickuv Brod and the second in shire of Pelhrimov. As I child a planned visits with my parents of our relatives on a country, according to animals they had. Later my biggest dream was to own a dog but my parents were unfortunately against that.
My very first dog, that I coaxed, was female Lassie, mixture of collie and german shepherd. She stayed with my grandmother. When I was 11 years old we took an older smooth-haired dachshund, who was unwanted in his family anymore. Within two years Adarek got paralyzed in hindquarters. Later I bought by myself an irish setter Harry, but my parents found him another home very soon. Hunting dogs were my love since the beginning, and I am in love until now. I bought a female of wire-haired dachshund. Bára became pet of the whole family ans she lived with us for 13 years. I went to few shows with her and also to hunting tests. After her death I got a wire-haired miniature dachshund as a gift, his name was Bryan and he also became beloved member of our family. He died in age of 14 years. Few months after his passing away I bought wire-haired miniature dachshund Fabík, who is at the moment the smallest member of our dog family. Now only bohemian wire-haired pointing griffons follow.
Why did I choose breed of 'Bohemian wire-haired Pointing Griffon'?
During my stay in Zirovnice my grandmother was going for a walk with me to a wood called ´Hájek´. There is a hunting lodge and in my memories I kept this place connected with beautiful and friendly hunting dog cesky fousek (Bohemian wire-haired Pointing Griffon). Here my life-long dream was born - to have such a dog and to live in a hunting lodge.
I own three Bohemian wire-haired pointing griffons and I am always looking forward the most to walk with them in deep forests and swim in mountain streams during our stay in cottage in Jizerské mountains. This breed is my passion, that can not be described by words. I see them as a likeable, happy and qick dog friend but I also find a piece of nostalgy in their eyes. In the beginning of my story I began to talk about nature and about it also the end will be. All my thoughs are nicely said in this verdict: 'Cesky fousek - dog for czech landscape'
